Sherlock: It has its curse.. learning to see the puzzle in everything. they're everywhere. Once you start looking, it's impossible to stop. But it just so happens that people, and all the deceits and illusions they live for and in everything they know, turns to be the most fascinating puzzle of them all. But of course, it's not always appreciated being seen as such.
Watson: Seems a lonely way to live...
Sherlock: As i've said, it has its curse.

It sucks when you're just being yourself and other stills hate you for it. They don't want you to be "you" because then it will make you a better person than they are. They feel like you're better off being the pretentious bitch they picture you of being, for by then they will keep on having the excuse to hate you and to talk about you. They say just be yourself, and others will surely love you. This is not entirely true. People will always look at you the way they want to. You can't change their attitude towards you, simply because it's "theirs."
They would not want you to change; hell, you would not want to change for them. what they want is for you to go away, and they can't stop you from staying where you feel like you belong. The trick is to concentrate on what matters, instead of those that keep on trying to destroy it apart. And no matter what happens, it's not about turning the other cheek or pretending to be blind and deaf, it's a matter of making a stand for what you believe. It's about making a stand for who you are now, not what they make you of.
Disclaimer: Oooooooops. This post is nothing personal. I just finished watching Elementary (Season 1) and i'm kinda inspired. LOL
